I'm a student who is very new to Maya, and I am wondering how to put an image into the side viewport to allow me to turn 2d objects into 3d objects.
I used to to this exact same thing in Cinema 4d, but everything was a lot easier, and I felt limited when trying to model guns, cars, and tools.
At first I tried dragging an image into the viewport, it brought up a sketchy program called "FCheck" (I believe it is a part of Maya).
I looked at a video when someone modeled a Karambit, they just-so-happened to skip the part in the video where they add the image to the viewport. If I knew what it was called in Maya to add an image, I could have possibly found the answer on Google. But, I had no clue what it was called. I've only watched a one hour video on YouTube for Maya's tools, so I'm fresh into Maya.
